Linda Jackson Bush Couture
If you are lucky enough to be in Melbourne, then I would say you should definitely head on down to the National Gallery of Victoria (Ian Potter Centre) to see the free exhibition Linda Jackson Bush Couture which opened on Australia Day.
Featuring the most dynamic and striking use of colour and textiles,the works by the Australian Artist are sure to engage your sense of the diverse, playful and eclectic. They cover a period from the mid 1970's to the 1990's and is only a handful of the artist's collection spanning a career of over 40 years.
The exhibit is beautifully curated and unlike most previous displays at the gallery, the garments are out on open display, allowing the viewer to be up close with the textiles and observe intricate details. As a lover of colour, the bold, the visually unusual, I was in my element and will revisit this exhibit many times. I do hope if you are able to see it in person, you do so, and if not, then please enjoy these images.
Linda Jackson Bush Couture is now showing at the National Gallery of Victoria (Ian Potter Centre) till the 9th of September 2012 Entry is Free and there are also live talks as part of the program. Check for details.
